Jorge Luis Borges - LIFE STORIES
 
 
8/24/1899     Being Borges
On this day in 1899 Jorge Luis Borges was born. Borges's Ficciones, his breakthrough collection of "essays" - the collection which introduced us to "Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote" and other such strangeness - is regarded as one of the essential postmodern texts and Borges, eighteen years after his death, retains his reputation as a unique writer in postmodern world literature.
